Klay Thompson (personal) started Wednesday's game and finished with 14 points, five boards, three assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes of action.
Thompson's status was a roller-coaster throughout the day. He was initially ruled out after flying to Portland to be with his ill grandfather, but he was later deemed 'questionable' and then 'probable'. Thompson's stats this season are remarkably similar to last year, including an identical 17.3 shots per game, and he's still returning fourth-round value despite the surplus of talented scorers in Golden State.

Klay Thompson (personal) has arrived at Oracle Arena and he will play vs. the Thunder.

Thompson flew back from Portland and he made it to the arena with enough time to ensure that he'll be in the starting lineup. Get him into your active lineups.

Klay Thompson (personal) is a game-time call against the Thunder on Wednesday.

His plane landed at 5:40 local time, so he has almost two hours to get to the arena and play. Thompson will get some shots up before the game and see how he feels after that. For now, we are considering him as closer to probable.
Jan 18 - 9:01 PM

Klay Thompson (personal) flew to Portland to visit his ill grandfather today and intends to return to Bay Area to play against the Thunder on Wednesday night, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Thompson has told general manager Bob Myers he could fly back in time for the game tonight, so Thompson looks like he's closer to probable for this game. If he isn't back in time, we'll see more Pat McCaw Ian Clark and Andre Iguodala could play more.

Updating a previous item, Klay Thompson (personal) is now questionable to play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

It was just five minutes ago Klay was called out for this game, but now there is a chance he can make it back with the team in time for tonight after dealing with a family matter. He'll likely be a game-time call for the late start tonight, so DFS players likely won't know when it's time to set your lineup. If he's out, Pat McCaw, Ian Clark and Andre Iguodala would benefit.

Klay Thompson (personal) is not with the team and will not play against the Thunder on Wednesday night.

The team says he is dealing with a "family matter" and didn't provide additional details. This will be his second game out of the lineup in the last eight days with a rest day back on Jan. 10. For tonight, it'll likely be Patrick McCaw getting the start while Ian Clark also should see more minutes off the bench. In the last game without Klay, McCaw played 19 minutes, Clark played 22 and Andre Iguodala played 29 minutes.
Jan 18 - 2:09 PM

Klay Thompson hit 9-of-15 shots, 4-of-5 3-pointers and 1-of-4 free throws for 23 points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 36 minutes on Thursday.

He stayed in the blowout for most of the fourth quarter, while Stephen Curry watched from the bench. Thompson's a career 85 percent free throw shooter so you can bet he's not happy with his free throw performance tonight. But the rest of his game was on point and he looked great after getting a day of rest on Tuesday.
Jan 13 - 1:17 AM

Klay Thompson will play against the Pistons on Thursday.

After getting Tuesday off, Thompson is ready to roll. "It was good for me in the long run," Thompson said about his rest. Even with Kevin Durant around, Thompson's usage rate has only dropped 1.2 percent from last year. His efficiency has also dropped due mostly to a dip in catch-and-shoot treys.
Jan 12 - 3:25 PM

Klay Thompson (rest) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

This will be the first rest day that Steve Kerr is dishing out to one of his main guys this season, and we could see rookie Patrick McCaw earn his first career start tonight with Thompson on the sidelines. However, with Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green all active, it's unlikely that McCaw will see much of a boost in value despite running with the starters. Andre Iguodala and Ian Clark should also pick up some extra minutes tonight sans Klay.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Patrick McCaw is the likely starter in Klay's place, but Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant are the real beneficiaries of this news. Neither McCaw or Ian Clark should see a big enough uptick to make them strong plays, but we can expect more of the scoring responsibility to fall on the shoulders of Durant and Curry. Durant is the top SF play on the slate, while Curry still slots behind Wall, Thomas, Lillard and Lowry.

Klay Thompson needed 19 shots to score 18 points on Sunday, adding six rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer and five turnovers in 36 minutes.

Thompson played through an illness on Saturday and wasn't even on the injury report tonight, so he'll be ready to go for the Warriors' two games next week. He's not reaching the same heights he achieved in 2014-15 and 2015-16, but is still hovering around early-round value with 21.4 points and 3.0 triples per game.
Jan 9 - 12:34 AM

Klay Thompson scored 17 points with six rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 42 minutes against the Grizzlies.

He was battling a cold in this game, but clearly it didn't affect his playing time. Thompson has been staying inside the arc more often these days with 11 two-point attempts tonight. He's going to get a great matchup against the Kings on Sunday -- his 37-point quarter came against them.
Jan 7 - 1:59 AM

Klay Thompson will start against the Grizzlies on Friday.

He should be all set for this one. Thompson may be limited, so he's a risky DFS play.
Jan 6 - 9:47 PM

Klay Thompson (illness) will play on Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

This report comes with an over an hour before tip-off, so he must've felt good in warmups. Needless to say, Thompson's owners in season-long leagues can activate him even at less than 100 percent.
Jan 6 - 9:29 PM

Klay Thompson (illness) will warm up on Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

He's shaping up to be a game-time call, but this is still a good sign. If Thompson isn't feeling up to it, Warriors coach Steve Kerr confirmed that Patrick McCaw would get the start in his place. We should know Thompson's status very soon.
Jan 6 - 8:56 PM

Klay Thompson (illness) is questionable for Friday against the Grizzlies.

Everyone is getting sick these days. If Klay can't play, there should be more minutes available for Ian Clark and Patrick McCaw. Thompson also has a 25.3 usage rate, so there will be some shots to go around for the starters.
